Myanmar Opportunities Fund II

South Asia Communications and IT Services

Delta Capital Myanmar is a private equity fund manager that provides growth capital to entrepreneurs and businesses across key growth sectors of Myanmar’s frontier economy.

The Myanmar Opportunities Fund II (MOF II) targets the country’s high-growth sectors, including consumer products and services, technology, telecommunication, banking and financial services.

Our investment

In 2017, CDC made a $15 million commitment to MOF II.   Our investment, alongside those from other DFIs and private investors, can provide early stage capital to fuel private sector growth in Myanmar.

Expected impact

Myanmar is one of the fastest growing economies in South East Asia, but challenges still remain to assure long-term economic recovery and create shared prosperity. While consistently declining over the past ten years, the poverty rate remains substantial, and Myanmar still has the lowest life expectancy and highest infant mortality rates in the region.

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are expected to be the engine of Myanmar's economic growth and a key generator of new employment opportunities.

However, the private sector is in its infancy and the supply of capital is limited. Our investment will enable the fund manager to support the development of the country’s private sector by providing early stage and growth capital to support SME expansion.

MOF II first investment was in Frontiir, one of Myanmar’s fastest growing internet service providers.

Environmental and social aspects

We will work with the fund managers to develop and implement an Environmental and Social Management System for this first-time fund.
